Newcastle United are a football team currently playing in the Championship having been relegated from The Barclays Premiership in the 08-09 season. Situated in Newcastle Upon Tyne, they were founded in 1892 when two Newcastle clubs merged. They are currently undergoing some managerial changes, as previous manager, Kevin Keegan, resigned from the club. Since then, owner Mike Ashley has put the club up for sale. No offers have been made so far. Keegan was replaced by Joe Kinnear, ostensibly for a short stay, but it was recently confirmed that Kinnear would stay for a while.

The club are known locally as both "The Toon" (local dialect for "town") and the "Toon Army". They are also known as the Magpies, owing to their black and white kit.
